When They Want To Learn What They've Been Doing
If you're a veteran who received a disability severance payment between 1991 and 2016, you could be owed a hefty tax refund. During that time period, the Department of Defense apparently withheld taxes on disability severance payments that should not have been taxed. After that issue was brought to light, Congress passed the Combat-Injured Veterans Tax Fairness Act of 2016, which instructed the DOD to make good and notify those who are owed money. Impacted veterans should expect to receive a letter in the mail from the DOD detailing their options in the coming weeks.

It’s been two decades since doctors fully recognized that breathing that stops and starts during sleep is tied to a host of health issues, even early death, but there still isn’t a treatment that most people find easy to use. Airway pressure masks, the most common remedy, have improved in design, getting smaller and quieter, but patients still complain about sore nostrils, dry mouths and claustrophobia.
Talk with an expert before you decide.

Disability Benefits Questionnaires
Every claim will generate some form or fashion of C & P exam. The C & P exam is as
unavoidable as death and taxes. Veterans dread the C & P exam because it's so often
wrong. You can control the situation...have a DBQ done by a disability expert! Talk with
Dr. Bash today about getting your DBQ signed off by an expert with years of experience.
If there's one thing military members know, it's that when the Defense
Department gives you too much money, it will come back for it eventually.
The VA is similar, but the system is worse.
Tens of millions of dollars in benefits for Florida veterans are going unclaimed because the vets either don't know they are eligible or have had a bad experience with the troubled Veterans Administration.

What Is a Fully Developed Claim?
The Fully Developed Claims (FDC) program is an optional initiative that offers Veterans and survivors faster decisions from VA on compensation, pension, and survivor benefit claims.
Veterans and survivors simply submit all relevant records in their possession, and those records which are easily obtainable, such as private medical records, at the time they make their claim and certify that they have no further evidence to submit. VA can then review and process the claim more quickly.
* As a Viet Nam Vet.I am in the process of completing a VA claim on e-benefits for my Psoriatic Arthritis.
* I would like to know if a veteran who is rated at 70% and is receiving benefits at 100% IU, files a new claim and is granted 30% for the new claim which now, for the sake of argument, raises his rating to 80%.
* I have been seeing the same psychiatrist for 5 years at the VA. I was not aware that he was leaving the VA, but I was given a UDS at my last appointment with him.
* I think the person who is providing my father-in-law's care at home is using drugs. He's a veteran and is trying to get the VA to pay her for the care she provides. Does the VA require drug testing for caregivers?

I have been an unabashed critic of the VA for years based on my experience as a veteran's law attorney, a veterans advocate and in my personal dealings with the agency as a veteran. I was also a strong defender of former Secretary Shulkin, and I still believe his firing was a mistake. I must admit, however, that President Trump may have found a Secretary who is even better than Shulkin.
Last year, the Trump administration insisted that its regressive tax cuts were so
important, it was worth adding $1.5 trillion to the national debt to ensure their passage.
Now, the White House is warning Congress that the United States
cannot afford to add $1.6 billion to the deficit to expand health-care options for veterans.
Administration officials sent a letter Monday cautioning lawmakers against raising
spending caps to accommodate shifts in funding for a popular
veterans health program, though they stopped short of threatening a veto.
An estimated fourteen of the twenty veterans that take their lives each day are not patients in the VA system. Now, a new three-pronged approach is being tried in Nevada. The VA is getting involved in the community by working with local hospitals and putting hotline numbers in liquor stores.

VETERANS BENEFITS ADMINISTRATION
Office of the Inspector General
Why the OIG Did This Review The OIG conducted this review to determine whether Veterans
Benefits Administration (VBA) employees required disabled veterans to submit to unwarranted medical reexaminations. 1 VBA employees have authority to request reexaminations for veterans
“whenever VA determines there is a need to verify either the continued existence or the current
severity of a disability,” and when there is no exclusion from reexamination. 2 While reexaminations
are important in the appropriate situation to ensure taxpayer dollars are appropriately spent, unwarranted reexaminations cause undue hardship for veterans. They also generate excessive work, resulting in significant costs and the diversion of VA personnel from veteran care and services. What the Review Found VBA employees did not consistently follow policy to request reexaminations only when
necessary.3 The OIG team reviewed a statistical sample of 300 cases with reexaminations from March through August 2017 (review period) and found that employees requested unwarranted medical reexaminations in 111 cases. Based on this sample, the review team estimated that employees requested unwarranted reexaminations in 19,800 of the 53,500 cases during the review period (37 percent).

Today, a local veteran went before a federal judge to try and prove the
Department of Veterans Affairs is interfering with his right to access opioids.
Sgt. Armando Carbajal, a Phoenix police spokesman, said there is evidence that the man had previously been treated at the VA hospital. A Phoenix Fire Department crew rushed the man to another hospital, where he remained in critical condition Friday afternoon, Carbajal said. Prior to this incident, another possible suicide by a veteran had occurred outside the same hospital in October 2017.
Over-due and over-budget, the new VA is ready to celebrate July 21, but Contact7 is hearing from veterans who say they have received little to no information about the new facility.
"I find it incredibly frustrating," said Cypriane Williams.
Recruiting physicians to care for veterans at the Oklahoma City Veterans Affairs Medical Center
has become a struggle. Veterans Affairs officials said one of the biggest issues to not being able
to recruit qualified physicians is money. Oklahoma City Veterans Affairs Director Wade Vlosich
said the harsh reality is that, right now, there are 21 positions at the Veterans Affairs that officials
might never be able to fill. Many of those positions are for specialty physicians.
